23 A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.
23 The prudent keep their knowledge to themselves, but a fool's heart blurts out folly.
23 A prudent man conceals knowledge, but the heart of fools proclaims folly.
23 Prudent people don't flaunt their knowledge; talkative fools broadcast their silliness.
23 A prudent man conceals knowledge, But the heart of fools proclaims foolishness.
23 The wise don't make a show of their knowledge, but fools broadcast their foolishness.
